The Sun: beginner’s guide to our local star

My first book, The Sun: beginner’s guide to our local star, was published this year in May 2023. The title is a part of the Collins Astronomy series, exploring the history, science and safe observation of our nearest star.


The book is available on Amazon around the world, including:

  • “There is an army of solar observers, both professional and amateur, who study the Sun and if you’d like to join their ranks then Ryan French’s The Sun is a good place to start.” - Astronomy Now
